The number of laid up container ships has fallen to 207 vessels from 225 two weeks before, shows Alphaliner’s own numbers from June 18. The total laid up container tonnage is at 432.000 TEU or 2.7 percent of the container fleet.

Currently, the ship Tolten at 8.004 TEU is the only ship above 7.500 TEU which is laid up. The ship is owned by CSAV, but has been chartered by Maersk Line since it departed from the yard on June 12. It is expected that the ship will enter into Maersk Line’s services in the coming weeks.
